Julianne Moore is in talks to star opposite Amy Adams in Joe Wright’s forthcoming The Woman in the Window, per THR.
The film is an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s 2018 novel of the same name. The thriller is loosely modeled after Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, but instead of Jimmy Stewart’s wheelchair-bound voyeur, The Woman in the Window features Adams as Anna, a severely agoraphobic child psychologist who is unable to leave her home. Anna is convinced she is the sole witness to a violent crime committed next door, but given her illness—and tendency to mix her medication with alcohol—the police don’t believe her.
Moore is in talks to play the mother of the young boy who moves in across the street. The actress won an Oscar in 2015 for her work in Still Alice, after four previous nominations. She was last seen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle and will appear in the forthcoming adaptation of Ann Patchett’s critically acclaimed 2001 novel Bel Canto.
Meanwhile, Adams has officially reached Leonardo DiCaprio levels of Oscar snubbing at five nominations and zero wins, with her most recent for 2013’s American Hustle. She’s currently starring in HBO’s psychological thriller Sharp Objects and can next be seen as Dick Cheney’s wife Lynne Cheney in Adam McKay’s political drama Backseat.
As previously announced, Wright will direct the film. He is best known for helming period dramas like Pride & Prejudice, Atonement and last year’s Oscar-winning Darkest Hour.
